Jacksonville – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will be making operational improvements to the interchange at Interstate 10 and Interstate 95, the Fuller Warren Bridge, and along U.S.17 between McDuff Avenue and Rosselle Street. A public Open House will be held on Thursday, June 1, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the FDOT’s Jacksonville Urban Office in the Training Center building (2198 Edison Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204). The public is encouraged to attend the informal Open House to meet the designers, engineers, contractors and FDOT teams working to make the improvements to Your10and95.
Details about Your10and95 include:
Interstate 95 (Fuller Warren Bridge) improvements:
- Widening of the Fuller Warren Bridge expanding northbound and southbound lanes from three lanes to four lanes.
- Parallel to traffic lanes, a Shared Use Path (SUP) will be added on the southbound side of the Fuller Warren Bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists connecting San Marco and Riverside communities. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be separated from traffic by a 10-foot shoulder and a standard barrier wall that is three-and-a-half feet tall, with an additional 10-foot tall fence. There will be three points along the SUP that jut out from the bridge to provide vantage viewing points.
Interstate 10 Improvements:
- Providing a dedicated ramp to Irene and Stockton Street to reduce weaving traffic merging from Interstate 95 southbound to Interstate10 westbound.
- Widening of overpass from Interstate 95 northbound to Interstate 10 westbound, allowing for future improvements along Interstate 10 westbound.
- Building sound barriers for residents along U.S.17 between McDuff Avenue and Rosselle Street.
- Building sound barriers for residents along the south side of Interstate 10 eastbound between Stockton and College Streets.
- Interstate 95 SUP enhancements on the Fuller Warren Bridge will include Riverside Arts Market (RAM) aesthetics on the Riverside SUP on-ramp and other inspirational and decorative earth wall designs.
- Architecturally decorative lighting features along the bridge’s SUP will be installed. New bridge elements (the SUP) will mirror current bridge elements with special RAM and Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens artistic features.
- New monument signs will be constructed for Stockton and College Streets.
